The other day I went to the doctor's. Totally routine, expected to be there for 10 minutes while the nurse checked my blood pressure and gave me my latest contraceptive injection. I ended up being there 35 minutes, and walked the long way home, taking advantage of the crisp and chilly Autumn air (my fave).… Continue reading Lifestyle Update
I think my handbag collection is a relatively healthy size. It may not be the most diverse collection in terms of design and colour, but every piece serves a purpose and has a story. I'm also not someone who'll spend serious cash on a bag, but my collection isn't made of £10 designer dupes from… Continue reading So Many Handbags, Too Little Outings
It's November. It is officially pre-Christmas time. Accept it. I start my Christmas shopping early, and by "early" I mean on Boxing Day. I just get very excited! I love giving presents - showing my appreciation to people, showing how much they mean to me, getting to really spoil them if I can. This year… Continue reading 6 Small Businesses to Support With Your Christmas Cash
It's finally October! My favourite season is here! Bring on the pumpkin spice, bring on the longer evenings, bring on the one-figure temperatures - my time is here! But the best thing about October? Well, it's obviously Halloween. To be honest, as much as I love dressing up and getting a bit tipsy at the… Continue reading The Halloween Films You Need For a Spooky Night In
Aaaand we're back in the office! Not every day of the week, just two days for now, but it's a start. It's been good to be back in the same room as my colleagues, have organic conversations about our clients or projects without having to schedule them first, and just be working somewhere that isn't… Continue reading What’s In My Work Bag?
I am a Revlon ColourStay loyalist. I don't think I've used another foundation in the last four, maybe five years? I'm not kidding, it's actually one of my holy grail make up products, which you can read all about on this previous blog post (plug plug plug). I've never really needed another foundation, because why… Continue reading Is It Worth It? – The Ordinary Serum Foundation
(Ironically, this blog post took me two weeks to finish) The UK business scene is starting to get back on it feet, with some businesses reintroducing employees into the office environment with new rules and restrictions. For me, I'm still working from home, typing and scheming away at my dressing table/workspace. I do miss the… Continue reading How to Maximise Your Productivity
I can't be the only one whose seen the term "blue light" floating around, or the slew of Instagrammers showing off their #spon blue light glasses a lot more lately, right? (Ironically, this is not a #spon post, just so we're clear.) Because of my job, I spend roughly ten hours a day on my… Continue reading Blue Light Glasses – A Fashionable Fad, or The Real Deal?
If there is one thing I love more in this world than chicken nuggets and Henry Cavill, it's gotta be jewellery. There's just something so elevating to an outfit about jewellery; it's like the cherry on top of a cake. You could be wearing a totally boring, all-black outfit that makes you look like a… Continue reading Everyday Jewellery Collection
(try saying that five times, fast) Unsplash: Austin Chan I know what you're thinking. "Positive pessimism? That doesn't make sense! What is this girl on?" Well, bare with me and I'll explain, alright? I guess "realist" is probably the most familiar term when describing this outlook, but "positive pessimism" does differ slightly. In case ya… Continue reading Practising Positive Pessimism
